    1 Standout Story!

    It's more a 3 1/2 stars read. Some of the stories were just ok, a couple I wasn't impressed with at all. The saving grace was How to Land an Earl in 10 Days or Less by Ava Stone. I love when someone's trying to play others and the table is turned. I was also glad that at the end, we learn who Lady X turns out to be!

    Wonderful!

    What can be better than a book with 6 stories by six different talented writers? Not much I would say! Each has the gossip of Lady X attached to their story who deals out the latest on dits to the ton. The goal for each character is not to land on her list because it makes it difficult to be redeemed! Love Me Lord Tender by Deb Marlowe is just one of those stories. William Grey, Lord Tensford had been labeled "Lord Terror" by Lady X and it made him shunned and whispered about by everyone in the Ton! Unfortunately he needed to wed an heiress to bring much needed funds into his estate to counteract the wasteful spending of his family. At a ball, he runs into Lady Hope Brightley and ends of coming to her aid by getting her out of a compromising situation by an relentless suitor. She dubs him Lord Tender due to his coming to her rescue. Now, he is teased and looked at as a fortune hunter! Hope is determined to find him a suitable wife, but does she really want anyone else to have him? This is a delightful story of how rumors and untruths can turn the course of one's life, but in the end the heart prevails. Loved this story!! The Scandalous Widow by Erica Monroe takes on a little darker side of the Ton. Gabriel Sinclair, a bow street runner has seen a lot. But when he finds a peer murdered who he recognizes, he can hardly believe it was a random act. Lady Jemma Forster, Countess of Wolverston believes her husband's murder was for financial gain and she is determined to find the truth. Gabriel and Jemma have a past that cannot be ignored as they work together to find Lord Wolverston's killer. Can old feelings come back alive? An intriguing story that will keep you guessing! How to Land an Earl in Ten Days or Less by Ava Stone shows how a wager made by Reese Delacy, the Earl of Darling can go terribly wrong. When he makes a wager he can make any girl fall in love with him in 10 days, he does not realize Lady X will print it in the paper! So every available girl is staying away from him except one, Miss Cara Beckett. Cara needs his help in helping her family and people who are in the Caribbean. As they are brought together, how does Reese's scheming backfire? A delightful read that you will enjoy. One Moonlit Tryst by Amanda Mariel has Lady Taibtha Pemberton in her first season and wanting to just have fun and not be serious about marriage until her next year. But as a rumor gets out when Lady X writes about her having a tryst with Colin Brooks, things are not so simple anymore!! This story will have you smiling and feeling good as you turn the last page. The Lady Loves a Scandal by Christina McKnight brings us Gideon Lyndon, Viscoutn Galway who is wanting to win back Sybil Anson's affections. Having disappeared for over a year, he is trying to keep his secrets of why he left and keep Sybil safe. But as we all know, keeping secrets never works out! A bumpy ride ensues as Gideon works hard to get Sybil back and have a happy ever after for them both. A Lady Hoyden's Secret by Dawn Brower shows again how keeping secrets is very difficult. Lady Helena Carter knows she cannot let her secret get out or she may be ruined and Lady X will reveal all. Oliver Hunt, the Marquis of Dashville has his own concerns regarding Lady X and it seems only Helena can help him. As they come together so does their attraction, but as secrets are uncovered, they struggle not to be torn apart. So in the end the Lady of Whispers, Lady X played a part in each of the stories. It goes to show, a secret or an incorrect whisper can change the course of one's life and love!!

    Nice assortment of regency romances

    I received a copy of this book from NetGalley to read in exchange for a fair review. It Started With A Whisper is a collection of 6 regency novellas by Deb Marlowe, Amanda Mariel, Christina McKnight, Erica Munroe, Ava Stone, And Dawn Brower. The individual stories are linked by the gossip column Whispers from Lady X. I enjoyed reading the novellas each with a different trope. A wager about a kiss, a secret heiress, a missing groom, a murder mystery with the one that got away, a wager about falling in love, and the unveiling of Lady X. My only problem with this book is that Lady X’s gossip whispers tend to be quite cruel and cause distress for the characters, so when she turns out to be the heroine of the last novella I was annoyed with her and didn’t like her at all. I do recommend this book. #ItStartedWithAWhisper #NetGalley

    ...fascinating collection of tempting tales.

    With a stroke of the pen and a vivid imagination, these six immensely talented authors have created something special. It Started with a Whisper is mysterious, sensuous, humorous and hard to resist. By mixing old school values with modern day twists, historical romance will continue to shine it's bright light on a much loved genre of stories. Deb Marlowe and Dawn Brower, show how dangerous gossip can be to one's reputation and heart. Erica Monroe begins with a scandal and ends with a hard won happily ever after. Second chances are the catch of the day when Ava Stone and Christina McKnight take center stage. Amanda Mariel seduces readers and characters alike with her tale of One Moonlit Tryst. Prepare to be scandalized and hypnotized with this fascinating collection of tempting tales.
